the uk hacking scandal. the country's two top police officials now quick. rebeckka brooks is outon bail and along with rupert murdoch they've all been called to testify tomorrow in parliament. and -- >> what are you doing here? >> thought i'd try out my sea legs. >> you ain't got no legs, lieutenant dan. >> you know him best as lieutenant dan from "forest gump." but the story doesn't stop there for gary sinise. how the role of a lifetime has inspired him to help our men and women in uniform. good day i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. can washington -- can wishing rather for a balanced budget make it happen? the house is voting tomorrow to cap spending and approve a balanced budget amendment. even though senate leaders say there is no chance of it passing. is this just a chance to let off some tea party steam? we me now georgia republican congressman john price member of the budget committee as well. congressman, great to see you. >> thank you so much. >> let's talk about this cap and the balanced budget amendment as well. what is the point, time is short. everyone agree it's not g

, flatter and fair. >> senator, david brooks wrote today in "the new york times" that this is the mother of all no brainers for republicans. he says if the republican party were a normal party, his words, not mine, it would take advantage of this amazing moment. it's being offered the deal of the century. trillions of dollars in spending cuts in exchange for a few million of revenue increases. a normal republican party would seize the opportunity. it would seize the opportunity to put the country on a sound fiscal footing. it would seize the opportunity to do these things without putting a crimp in economic growth. his point is that the republican party is now a captive of tea party activists and isn't taking a deal that they ought to take. >> mr. brooks is not listening to the same people i'm listening to which are my constituents. i don't think the message that he got from the november election was the same message i got. now we're spending 43 cents out of every dollar is borrowed money. the national debt's $14.3 trillion and threatens a sovereign debt crisis unless we deal with it and

? edited, by the way, at that time by rebecca brooks. they sent 20 scantily clad women to her office and had loads of photographs everywhere. they described the minister at the time as frumpy, dumpy, fat and ugly. there was humiliation as a form of coercion and then we heard yesterday, gordon brown, the former prime minister, talking about the fact that his disabled son, his son has cystic fibrosis, medical records for his son alleged by gordon brown in the house of commons yesterday, was stolen from a hospital by a criminal that he believes was working for "the sunday times" newspaper. so you have that kind of power. you have the ability to humiliate an mp and the ability to intervene in their personal life and that's why he was so forceful and powerful. i can tell you, andrea, until about three weeks ago, you couldn't count on five fingers the number of politicians who would stand up to rupert murdoch in britain because every single one of them was frightened of his influence. >> of course, gordon brown's little boy frazier is doing very well but it was at birth that that informati

. >> miss brooks. rupert murdoch in his evidence session said quitely that the responsibility for the closure of news of the world fell fairly and swearly on senior management which i assume would include you, is that the case? >> i think i missed that part of the evidence. i think mr. murdoch said it exactly how it was. that it was a collective decision. we all talked together. mr. murdoch was abroad at the time at a conference. we all talked together. >> murdoch senior? >> yes, rupert murdoch. >> you were going to say something snels. >> no. >> when you were advising your staff the paper was closing during the private session. i think you said something like there was more to come. youl you like to expand? >> when i went down to the newsroom to explain the decision, clearly and and quite rightly the journalists on the news of the world who very honorable journalists who have been putting out the newspaper under the scrutiny for a long time and with great exclusives and great pride in their newspaper were very sad and baffled by management's decision to close the paper. what

. >> what david brooks wrote last week, interestingly, and certainly some republicans took note of it because david brooks is well known and well respected in republican and democratic circles as a "new york times" writer. he said if the republican party were a normal party, it would take advantage of this amazing moment. it is being offered the deal of the century, trillions of dollars in spending cuts in exchange for a few hundred billion dollars of revenue increases. and there have been bipartisan and nonpartisan groups that have suggested it would be $400 billion of loophole closures that could be affected without calling it in effect a tax increase. >> well, our budget which was passed last april, proposed to close all these loopholes in exchange for tax reform. so we were the first to call for closing all these corporate tax loopholes to lower our tax rates, to create jobs. so nobody should hold a candle to us on wanting to close loopholes. we have been saying that forever. it's just all the spending cuts, we have yet to see specifics. we have yet to see commitments to do
